Let me first begin by saying how fortunate I've been to have a baby who is on such a rock solid schedule. He wakes up around 6:30. Naps around 8:30 until 10:00 or so. Naps again at 1:30 or 2:00 and then goes to bed around 7:00. Like clockwork. Without much fuss.
Until the last few days.
Normally, when I put him in bed, he starts sucking his thumb and lies right down and goes to sleep. Lately, he's been taking more than an hour to get to sleep. He plays for awhile, talks to himself, throws everything overboard, and then finally dozes off. But, only for about 45 minutes to an hour.
I don't know if he's trying to abandon a nap (which will make me very sad). Or if he's just fired up about his new walking skills (he's walking full tilt these days).
Last night he stayed up way past his bedtime (9:45) and he woke up later (7:45), and then he stayed up later this morning (10:45), and when I put him down, he went to sleep immediately. So, we'll see where the day takes us....
I just hope we can still squeeze in two naps. I need one for getting things done and one for getting my own nap. :)
